Lucky Bo, Jalan Bangkung

Lucky Bo, Jalan Bangkung

My siblings and I spent a lot of my childhood along Jalan Bangkung – where my parents would take us to the park nearby to cycle and rollerblade. The Bangkung Row used to be office lots before it became an F&B hub, and has become one of my go-to places for a good night out. Lucky Bo is the latest addition to Bangkung Row and claims to serve one of the cheapest wagyu in town.

So I paid them a visit to see if this was true.

Don’t get why they are so stingy with bread

It can get pretty crowded during dinnertime on weekends so I suggest you call them ahead to secure a table. Service was friendly and efficient, but I did notice a few hiccups here and there when they are running on maximum occupancy.

Wagyu Tomahawk

The star of the show is the Wagyu Tomahawk (about 1.2 to 1.3kg per slab), priced at about RM418++. There is also a 1.6kg slab (RM478++) for larger groups. I tried both the 1.3kg and 1.6kg tomahawk when I went to Lucky Bo on separate occasions.

Juicy and tender, with a good amount of fat for flavour

Lucky Bo’s Wagyu Tomahawk is pretty good in terms of cut, but I feel the kitchen hasn’t quite mastered the grilling process as the steak I got during my first visit was rare at the centre – I asked for medium rare. The staff took it back to recook after we notified them, so it wasn’t too big of an issue.

Second time around, I played safe and asked for the steak to be cooked to medium doneness and it arrived medium rare. I suspect this is also due to the size of the tomahawk as it is difficult to evenly cook a cut as large as this. Tastewise, the steak was good – tender and juicy with good flavour from the fat.

Char kuay teow, cooked with wagyu fat

Pretty good stuff

The staff would offer to cut away the huge chunk of fat (which people usually leave behind) for the kitchen team to use for char kuay teow, and you get this complimentary if you order the tomahawk. It was my first time eating char kuay teow with wagyu fats, instead of pork lard and I rather enjoyed it.

Baked Whole Camembert

Grilled Spanish Octopus

For starters, try the Baked Whole Camembert (RM36) – this comes with gherkins and butter fried potatoes. Good for sharing but I wouldn’t mind having the entire thing on my own. The Spanish octopus salad is also pretty decent though I like the cheese better.

Spaghetti aglio olio with duck jamon and mushroom

On my second visit, my friends and I shared the spaghetti aglio olio with duck jamon and mushroom (RM28). The pasta was cooked al dente and I liked that they didn’t go overboard with the olive oil. A good buffer dish while waiting for your steak to cook.

You get an option of ice cream or cake (available at the counter) for dessert. We had the Pandan Gula Melaka and a chocolate cake – the name I can’t recall. That’s because the latter was much to shout about.

If you’re ever craving for steaks, Lucky Bo serves decent ones. Prices are alright so your meal won’t burn a hole in the wallet. Maybe a dent if you’re planning to order (a bottle) wine. Expect to pay between RM250 – RM300 per head if you’re getting that Wagyu Tomahawk. Still reasonable for the cut and quality of meat, I reckon.
